I have a good collection of sushi books, and this by far outranks them all. I first began to appreciate sushi in the mid 80's, began making it for myself in the 90's and these days I fine tune my interest. I highly recommend this book. If you are unsure, teeter-tottering, or considering getting this as a gift for someone else - doubt no more. This baby rocks. ;)
This book also has a section on the history of sushi, information on the utensils, ingredients and fish used to make sushi. You will learn to make scattered, stuffed, pressed, rolled and hand-formed sushi.
A special section also describes etiquette, problems and solutions and information on the sushi bar experience. A directory of sushi bars and a great index complete the package.
Look for bonito fish flakes and kombu to order with this book. Amazon sells both and you need those basic ingredients to make the stock and rice. If you can't find them at your local market this book also has a list of Japanese retailers and fish suppliers. Also look for Dried Seaweed in sheets and a bamboo rolling mat.
~The Rebecca Review
There's allot more in the book than just Sushi. There are so many recipe's for other dishes served at Sushi resturants, you'd have to be in Japan to see them all.
Contents include under these major categories:
The best part is the simple and clean photography, especially of the fish which the show what they look like both whole (scales and all) to cut up.
The "pressed sushi" section is my favorite, very impressive!
I really appreciate the encouragement from the author that making sushi can be by anyone!
If you're past the basics in making sushi (although, they are there in this book) you really want this book on your shelf.
You can find concise cultural background, easy to understand explanations from cutting fish to creating dishes in a very exquisite manner, as well as important etiquette while eating in a sushi bar.
It covers a very wide scope of shushi styles and the pictures are really great, so they all make the reading a worthwhile experience.
The best cost/benefit I have ever seen when it comes to cooking books.
